Pho24

Pho24 is a chain restaurant of Vietnamese rice noodle soup with location in Vietnam, Indonesia (as the first established overseas), Cambodia, the Philippines, Hongkong, Sydney and I think more other countries. I've seen some Pho24 restaurants in Jakarta but I didn't have the chance to give it a try until today.

My friend was going to pick me up at a meeting point in TIS - Tebet Indrayana Square which is a place with some well known restaurants. When I got to that place, my friend was still on his way thus since it's lunch time, I thought of having something to eat, walked around and the restaurant of Pho24 was just in front of my eyes :)

Vietnamese Iced Coffee (Rp. 16.000 + 10% tax)
An aromatic Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk.

Pho Chin (Rp. 31.000 + 10% tax)
I just love the taste of the rich flavor and taste of the beef broth with tender slices of beef.

Mixed with bean sprouts, red chili, mint leaves, basil leaves, fresh onions slices and lime juice.

Exactly when I finished my delicious bowl of Pho, my friend's car was already in front of the restaurant :)

  2. The commercialized Pho ... I wish they're here though, in Malaysia.

  3. I like Viet coffee but prefer it warm than cold cos the ice will dilute the strength of the coffee. When I have pho in California, they don't have red chili :O

  4. I have had Pho Chin locally at a place in Princeton, and I love it!

    You know I gave you a shout out on my Momofuku-gasmic post, since you always show such great food on here, and I finally had Steamed Pork Buns!

  23. Your photos are wonderful, Selba. Pho is one of my favorite foods and I could eat it at least once a day. The bowl you assembled for us is scrumptious looking. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  24. Mmm, I love pho! Though sometimes, I have a hard time eating it and drip the broth on myself. Then I smell like pho later, which kind of grosses me out.

    I wish we had Pho24 here!

  25. GREAT photos and timing, Selba. Now that's the coffee I want to try. Gee, I wonder if this place is in the states?

    Thanks for sharing...

  26. mary: thanks you for your kind compliments, Mary. Have you ever tried to cook pho by your own? Maybe can see it on your blog :)

    mica: Hehehe... same with me! Sometimes, I also drip the broth of pho to myself.

    louise: thanks for the compliments, Louise :) Oh.. this Vietnamese coffee is really good! I'll recommend it. As far as I know, there's no Pho24 in the US but they are planning to open there.
